Living all over the world, especially in Paris seems to be the reason she got married and started producing children. Shortly thereafter she became unhappy with her marriage and philandering husband, yet wouldn't stand up to him or leave. There is a lot of complaining and 'why doesn't he love/want/need me' going on.
The author also seems to like very few women, there are many clearly nasty observations regarding her own sex. With men she is much gentler.
I don't think that this is a true picture of its time, or at least not for most women of that era. Maybe in that rarefied atmosphere of diplomatic corps.
All in all I wanted to like this book, but after 2/3 of it I started skimming through a lot, as it was scattered but not all that interesting.
This is a book about a woman waking up out of a very deep but beautiful sleep. The imagery is powerful as she allows you to see the world through her eyes.
On memorable "scene" (it truly was like a movie to me) was set in an apartment she had rented in a royal palace in Paris. She is throwing a party and Salvador Dali arrives and she graciously speaks to him in Spanish, his native language and he insults her children and dog! Her insight and comments are extraordinary. The people she knew and wrote about, equally amazing. The book is a work of art in the beauty of its narrative but that is merely a fascinating backdrop to the real and most extraordinary story that is being told.
Renee was no timid gal but a pistol of a woman. Witness how she handled the obstacles that kept popping up in her life; not insignificant obstacles.
Her encounter with Salvador Dali in Paris told of a woman committed to her children's well-being. A woman who took no guff sticking totally to her guns.
I found her easy to read yet full of fun plus adventure while at the same time insightful.
I am so pleased she wrote this; so pleased to have read it. She captured a slice of life that few get the luxury of inspecting.
A remarkable read! A remarkable lady!
